Yellow Swallowtail

This new Swallowtail stamp has been a huge hit! Everyone who sees it loves it. My mom would have had to have had it. She loved butterfly's, and this one reminds me of her.

I used white card stock, and embossed the image in white embossing power. Then I rubbed or burnished (burnish: tap sponge or dauber in ink, and apply ink to card stock in a continued rubbing motion, without lifting sponge or dauber from card stock.... like you are giving it a back rub) daffodil ink in the center, then more mustard ink, then pumpkin ink on the other edges. Layerd the card on daffodil card stock and tied on the ribbon. I then used the 2-way glue and outlined a bit of the lines and sprinkled on dazzling diamonds glitter.

I made about 30 of these. My arm was killing me after all that burnishing! Funny story about the word burnish. I was teaching this techique in club, and was explaning to the new stampers to burnish, not tap the ink on on card stock. Dear Becky was so confused, and didn't know why I was telling her to "burn the sh_ _??" Ya you fill in the blank... don't think I should say a bad work on public blog! Everyone got a good belly roll our of that one! I still laugh at it every time I use that word.

This card was used for my stamp teams top 10 in sales surprise in the mail. It was also used for my club swaps. Love it? Leave a comment. I like comments, ideas, and suggestions. Keep this blog on line by supporting me by ordering your Stampin Up Products from me at my web site.
